What if you are arrested for allegations of criminal mischief?

In Pennsylvania, there are certain legal terms that are obvious and easy to understand when a person is arrested and faces a criminal charge. For example, if a person is arrested for theft, the charge is relatively self-explanatory. However, other charges can be more confusing as to what it specifically entails. An example of this is "criminal mischief." There are many acts that will lead to criminal mischief charges and those who are facing these allegations must know what they are since this is a vital part of formulating a strong defense and potentially avoiding the penalties for a conviction.

What is the law regarding assault charges on a sports official?

Any assault charge in Pennsylvania will be problematic for the individual who is confronted with the allegations and potential penalties. In any case in which there are assault charges, the circumstances are critical. For some situations, the charges will be enhanced and the penalties will rise commensurately. This is true when there is a charge of assault on a sports official. For people who are facing these allegations, having a strong legal defense is imperative to attempt to avoid the long-term consequences of a conviction.

What if I face a criminal charge for indecent assault?

Being accused of sex-related crimes in Pennsylvania can have a lasting effect on a person's life.

The stigma with these allegations is vast and will hinder the person in myriad ways.

Women face severe penalties after robberies

Being accused of robbery in Pennsylvania can lead to a litany of charges that will negatively impact a person's life.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the allegations, it is critical to contact a criminal defense attorney.

What is the law for allegations of stalking in Pennsylvania?

The term "stalking" carries with it negative connotations regardless of its context. Pennsylvanians can feel threatened, afraid and not know how to handle a situation where there is a person who they believe is stalking them and will not stop. Often, they will file criminal charges against the person. Law enforcement is obligated to treat these allegations seriously to protect those who say they are being victimized. Still, just because a person says that he or she is being stalked does not make it true. It certainly does not mean that it will warrant a criminal conviction and the accompanying penalties for a conviction. People who have been accused of stalking another person should think about their rights and have legal assistance to provide a defense.

Assault versus aggravated assault in Pennsylvania
